Just a thought, anybody think all the Posts/Threads etc. on Facebook are taking over a lot of the conversations ., buying, selling, discussion of gas and oil stuff ? Just a thought ? There seems to be a lot going on with FB to me.

I agree..it is easier just throwing pics on FB as well and you get quicker replies. I used to be in here hours a day, now I hardly ever do. Although the knowledge here is worlds better.

Yes, several of the Facebook sites I originally "liked" have turned out to be basically useless, although some of our members are now beginning to post. However, a site of this caliber takes a whole lot more dedication than a facepage.

I've never looked on Facebook for petro pages. My wife is on there constantly but I hardly ever look. Are they just personal likes to make up a community type page or what?.....GB

I will say this, I avoided Facebook for a very long time. In the few months I have been a member, I have bought several dozen very rare and unusual 2 gallons I would not have seen otherwise. Whatever you collect, there is a good chance, that, once in a blue moon, something interesting does turn up there.

Seems to me FB is more for the pickers, sales oriented. This is more collectors, history oriented.

Check it out Dave, I would say most ( 85% ) is NFS , I look at about 10 different FB pages on there everyday mostly 5 times day as it changes that often.. The thing about Oldgas is the vast knowledge on here and that's what's missing on FB.
Both different venues, both knowledgeable and we all know we can't learn enough about this stuff. There is a lot of OLDGAS guys on FB...maybe not the "old" diehards, smile

I logged into Facebook recently for the express purpose of investigating the items for sale on the different sites. You can tell from some of the responses on there, that a lot of the users are uneducated as far as gas & oil collectibles go. I use it to search for sale items but save my conversations for Old Gas. Both places have their use but Facebook will never take over for Old Gas!

Some of these people who post questions on the FB pages have no clue about the hobby. Someone the other day wanted a pump identified and it was something super common like a M&S 80, lol Just go back to collecting Beanie babies. Too funny.

facebook has become an OUTSTANDING venue for selling, buying and discussing topics related to the hobby! Picks of the week is 3477 members strong and is highly recommended by me and alot of the veteran members here are already members there!
Feel free to limit yourself to oldgas if you like, BUT there is a couple outstanding facebook pages offering some of the rarest signs money can buy and alot of knowledgable veterans give their opinions freely...
Lastly, ALL PICKERS are welcome with open arms and NOT shunned and disrespected because they are pickers or making a living selling signs!!! The rules are actually followed and STRICTLY enforced smile
